I recently came over this question
I am trying to implement duplicate file finder in visual C++. I followed this link Successful implementation of Duplicate Files Finder in C++ But it don't have md5.h file. From where I can get this header file. Thanks
That's obviously not asking for a code review, but how to find a 3rd party resource.
At the Stack Overflow site there's a close reason stating:
Questions asking us to recommend or find a book, tool, software library, tutorial or other off-site resource are off-topic for Stack Overflow as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it.
Doesn't the same apply here?
I used a custom comment to vote for closure, but I'm just wondering why there's no stock close reason available for such situation.
Our stock off-topic close reasons are:
- Questions containing broken code or asking for advice about code not yet written are off-topic, as the code is not ready for review. After the question has been edited to contain working code, we will consider reopening it.
- Questions must involve real code that you own or maintain. Pseudocode, hypothetical code, or stub code should be replaced by a concrete implementation. Questions seeking an explanation of someone else's code are also off-topic.
- Questions must include the code to be reviewed. Links to code hosted on third-party sites are permissible, but the most relevant excerpts must be embedded in the question itself.
- This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network
None of these really applies well.
Should we have another reason similar as provided at Meta SE (adapted for SE Code Review of course):
- Blatantly off-topic (this question doesn't have anything to do with a code review)
